Hot Stone Massage

How Does It Work?

Hot stone massage is a form of natural “thermotherapy” in which hot stones are positioned on specific areas of the client’s body and allow for greater deep tissue manipulation. Massaging oils are used to allow the therapist to work with the muscles easier and the hot stones may be alternated with cold stones or room temperature stones to facilitate the massage treatment. The stones used are typically river rocks or other very smooth-surfaced stones made of basalt. These stones are heated in sanitizing water before use. The high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage. Many people experience both mental (reduced stress, tension and anxiety) and physical (muscle relaxation, improved circulation and pain relief) benefits from a Hot Stone Massage.

More Effective Healing

Overly tense muscles can hinder the massage procedure, so if your muscles are extremely tight or stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.

While all types of massage can help relieve pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints or injuries, a hot stone massage may provide greater relief due to the intense nature of the massage. Because the hot stones allow the massage therapist to penetrate deeper, you may find that a hot stone massage leaves you feeling physically better than other kinds of deep-tissue massage that does not incorporate heat.

Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of a Hot Stone Massage knows the intense feeling of relaxation it provides the recipient.
